Fix Faction War

A substantial percent of people in low sec are in faction war or they are alts in fw. Imagine how many more people would be in low sec if the occupation mechanic in FW didn't blow.

 

I posted some general ideas of what I'm getting at in the comments.

Misc

Theme not cliche

Stop with idea that low sec is only pirates. Just because people like to pvp in low sec doesn't mean they only want to gank noobs in pve fits. Its just a good way to pvp without the bubbles and blobs of null sec. Low sec is/can be several things: 1)Low sec is NOT where empire meets null sec. It is the front line for the major empire wars. (Null sec BTW is of no interest to the 4 major empires) 2) Because its a literal ...more »

Expropriation (LoSec Expansion) Part 2

True "Pirate" systems. Sure, in deep 0.0 you have Angels, Serpentis, Gurista home systems/constellations. However, these cartels should have LoSec systems that are theirs as well - these would not be patrolled by CONCORD/Empire, they would have pirate faction agents, stations and LP stores. Think Tortuga from Pirates of the Carribbean. Gate guns on the "outside" do not fire unless combat occurs at the gate, regardless ...more »

Pirate Software

In addition to boosters as low-sec only industry I was also throwing around the idea of some sort of 'Pirate Software' - black codes that left you do Hackish type things.

One simple example would be to replace Locator agents with player 'manufactured' tracing code

Exploration > missions, especially with "starter sites"

Add exploration content, especially accessible introductory exploration content to get people hooked. Exploration has one big advantage over missions: if it goes south, you can just cut your losses. There's no unfinished mission you have to either complete or lose standings. I'd much rather go to lowsec for exploration than missions. Rewards need to be comparable to wormholes, since the danger is. Exploration also has ...more »

Themes

Theme: Low-security space is the Wild West, not a pirate haven (or, and a pirate haven)

This is meant as a theme suggestion for what I think low-security space is all about; it's meant as a theme that I think is beneficial to everyone: pirates, victims and vigilantes alike. In the EVE storyline, low-security systems belong to some empire faction. They are not, as is a common perception, a no-mans land -- that would be null-security space. Nor are they the domain of pirate factions and criminals. Low-security ...more »

Mechanics

Large Smuggle Gates

Create Large Smuggle Gates. These should link to distant low sec pockets, can be used as massive short cuts through the Eve universe.

Fixing Piracy and FW in one go!

The problems with low sec Lack of a unique resource Low number of people Non profitable for corporations 2 different, non relate, crowds using the same space (FW and Pirates) My solution is to expand the FW to include the pirate factions that we have in-game. Players will be allowed to join Sanshas, Blood Raiders, etc... And this factions will fight for the control of systems in LS. Here come in play the unique new ...more »

Themes

Theme: Corruption

I suggest that one of the overarching themes of low-sec is corruption. I see low-sec to be a place where a willingness to ignore rules can get you a quick buck. * Illegal goods to transport? Smuggle it in or bribe someone to look the other way * Trading got you down? corruption and graft * PI not profitable? Strip mine and pollute. * Someone got something you like? Take it. * Don't like it? Pay someone else to impose ...more »

Smuggling Ring

Smuggling Rings *Portion of Scelestus Justicia Concept but may be used independently. - Smuggler agents available in los-sec stations and in space at SMuggler gates (see below) -- Will buy Illegal goods (according to region and illegality) -- Gives out Courier and Manufacturing missions which in volve the transportation/production of Illegal goods -- Act as locator agents for Smuggler Gates, revealing systems where ...more »

Cumulative GCC

Rather than a straight reduction in the criminal countdown, I'd suggest a cumulative GCC: 2 minutes for initial aggression, add 5 minutes for ship destruction, then add another 8 minutes for podkilling. This would facilitate solo roaming (no more getting stuck in one system because you had to disengage when your target's backup arrived and now don't have enough buffer left to withstand a volley from the gateguns) and ...more »

Letters of marque

Its a pirating license to gank ships from a certain factions and being rewarded for the kills with isk and LP. The hostile faction ships will automatically become orange for you. Each faction (pirate and empire) allow you to buy letters of marque against specific hostile factions. The bounty ratio depends on the difficulty. However be warned the letter becomes void if you kill anyone from the giving faction. And you ...more »
